All models come with a strong, nine-rung steel ladder partition behind the driver's seat, but we'd upgrade to the solid (and sound absorbent) steel bulkhead to reduce the risk of injury; this is available as an option, with or without a glazed panel.
Thanks to a square and wide load area with minimal wheelarch intrusion, the Fiorino can carry 2.5 cubic metres. The optional folding passenger seat boosts this to 2.8 cubic metres and also allows longer items of up to 2.5 metres to be carried.
The rear doors open wide (although don't fold back on themselves) and the Fiat can be bought with one or two sliding side doors. This means good access and the 1,523mm long loadspace can handle a Euro-pallet (just) as well as loads of 1,205mm high.
Choosing the Combi version with five seats means the standard payload of up to 610kg for petrol models and up to 660kg for diesels is reduced to 270kg. But the remaining space is still almost 750mm long, and the rear bench is removable should you need more room. A four-seat version is also available with a payload of 338kg.
